Rotation load
There are three cases of rotating load: 1) the load direction is fixed and the ferrule rotates; 2) the load vector rotates and the ferrule is stationary; (3) the load vector and the ferrule rotate at different speeds.
Application area
NTN bearings are widely used in the production of precision machinery for use in all fields. How to minimize friction coefficient and improve energy efficiency? This precision, which was purely expected in the past, has begun to be used in various fields of industrial sectors such as orbit satellites, aviation, railways and automobiles, papermaking equipment, office equipment and food machinery!
NTN common bearing classification: NTN miniature ball bearings, NTN deep groove ball bearings, NTN radial thrust ball bearings, NTN self-aligning ball bearings, NTN cylindrical roller bearings, NTN tapered roller bearings, NTN thrust Ball bearings, NTN self-aligning roller bearings. Can provide users with technical advice and after-sales service work.
In addition, Japan's leading products of NTN bearings include: NTN rolling bearings, NTN deep groove ball bearings, NTN high-precision bearings, NTN self-aligning bearings, NTN bearings, NTN flat ball bearings, NTN short cylindrical roller bearings, NTN Linear guide bearing, NTN ball screw bearing, NTN miniature linear guide bearing, NTN cross roller guide bearing, NTN bearing double rotation bushing bearing, NTN bearing ball sliding group, NTN bearing cam follower bearing.
Model structure
It mainly consists of three parts: post number, pre-number and basic number. The rear number indicates the material, tolerance and structure of NTN bearings in English and Arabic numerals. NTN bearing types are usually only indicated by the basic type. The basic model is also composed of three parts, namely: type code, size code and inner diameter code. The leading number indicates the rest of the bearing

NO2. Post number
The post number of the bearing is used to indicate the material, tolerance and structure of the bearing in English and Arabic numerals. The commonly used bearing radial clearance series are divided into 6 groups, including 1 group and 2 groups. The tolerance of bearing is divided into six levels from high level to low level. The internal structure number is used to indicate different internal structures of the same type of bearing with letters following the basic code.
No3. Basic number
The basic number indicates the width series, inside diameter, diameter series and type of NTN bearing. NTN bearing type code is represented by the fifth digit from the right of basic code (letters for cylindrical roller bearing and needle roller bearing), and bearing inner diameter is represented by the first digit from the right of basic code. The change series of bearing with the same structure and inner diameter in outer diameter and width are indicated by the third digit from the right of basic code. For example, for the centripetal bearing and the centripetal thrust bearing, 0 and 1 represent the ultra light series; the series of bearing width changes with the same bearing structure, inner diameter and diameter series are represented by the fourth digit from the right of the basic code. In 1990, China decided to modify the original rolling bearing code method and formulated the national standard.
Vibration comparison
NTN inlet bearing swing load and indefinite load. Sometimes the direction and size of the load can not be determined exactly. For example, in high-speed rotating machinery, in addition to the load with fixed rotor weight, there is also the rotating load caused by unbalanced mass. If the rotating load is much larger than the fixed load, the composite load is still the rotating load; if the rotating load is much smaller than the fixed load, the composite load is the pendulum Dynamic load.
No matter the rotating load or the swinging load, its size and direction are constantly changing. In the variable working state, the load of some ferrules may be rotation load, fixed load and swing load. This load is called an indeterminate load. Swing load and indefinite load should be considered as the same as the rotating load in the matching. Too loose matching will cause damage to the mating surface.
The transition fit or interference fit shall be selected for the ferrule and shaft or seat hole rotating relative to the load direction. The principle of interference size is that when the bearing is working under load, there is no "creep" phenomenon on the matching surface of the NTN bearing ring on the shaft or in the seat hole. When the load is very light, or the ferrule rotates at low speed occasionally under heavy load, the transition fit can be selected. At this time, the shaft surface should have higher hardness and smaller surface roughness. In case of heavy load, it is usually tighter than in case of light load and normal load. The heavier the load, the larger the fit interference.
The composite radial load acting on the ferrule is borne by the local area of the ferrule raceway and transmitted to the shaft or the relative area of Wuxi NTN bearing pedestal. This load is called fixed load. The characteristic of fixed load is that the resultant radial load vector is relatively static with the ferrule. Both the ferrule and the combined radial load do not rotate or rotate at the same speed are fixed loads. Loose fit can be selected for ferrule bearing fixed load.
Bearing inspection
First, check the vibration of NTN bearing in operation
From peeling, indentation, rust, crack, wear and so on, bearing vibration is very sensitive to bearing damage. Therefore, the vibration can be measured by using a special NTN bearing vibration measuring device (frequency analyzer, etc.), and the specific abnormal situation can not be inferred by frequency division. Because the measured values are different due to the service conditions of NTN imported bearings or the installation position of sensors, it is necessary to analyze and compare the measured values of each machine in advance to determine the judgment standard.
Second, check the sound of NTN bearing rolling
Because even if the bearing has slight peeling and other damages, it will produce abnormal sound and irregular sound, so it can be distinguished by using a sound detector. The sound detector is used to check the size and sound quality of the rolling sound of the running bearing, which plays a role of prevention in advance.
Third, check the temperature when NTN bearing rotates
If the temperature of NTN bearing outer ring can be measured directly by oil hole, it is more suitable. Generally, the temperature of NTN bearing can be inferred according to the temperature outside the bearing chamber. If the lubrication and installation parts are suitable, the bearing temperature will rise sharply, and abnormal high temperature will occur. At this time, the operation must be stopped and necessary preventive measures shall be taken.
Bearing introduction editor
As far as its function is concerned, it should be support, that is to say, literal explanation is used to bear the shaft, but this is only a part of its function, and the essence of support is to be able to bear the radial load. It can also be understood that it is used to fix the shaft. It is to fix the shaft so that it can only rotate, and control its axial and radial movement. The consequence of the motor without bearings is that it can't work at all. Because the shaft may move in any direction, while the motor requires that the shaft only rotate. Theoretically speaking, it is impossible to realize the function of transmission. Not only that, the bearing will also affect transmission. In order to reduce this effect, good lubrication must be realized on the bearing of high-speed shaft. Some bearings already have lubrication, which is called PRELUBRICATING bearing. Most bearings must have lubricating oil. When the load is running at high speed, friction will not only increase energy consumption, but also make it more terrible It is easy to damage the bearing. It's one-sided to turn sliding friction into rolling friction, because there is something called sliding bearing. Structure and performance characteristics of imported bearings
